In brief: See your dentist
A dental abscess can be related to decay and/or a periodontal problem/ recommendations for treatment will depend on what type of abscess you have.

In brief: With a dentist
This is usually approached with a combination of surgical drainage and antibiotics.
Do not ignore it. The complications, although not common, can be disastrous.
